The charity run by Scotland captain and East Renfrewshire man Andy Robertson has received a cash boost.

ClassForKids, the online booking and management platform for kids activity clubs, last week donated £1,000 to AR26 named after the Liverpool star.

Andy, who is from Clarkston, set up the charity two years ago to help underprivileged children and young people in East Renfrewshire and across Scotland.

Support on offer includes free football sessions.

In the past Andy has donated to local food banks in East Renfrewshire, including one based in Barrhead.

Nikki Th’ng, chief executive of ClassForKids, said:“The work AR26 do is quite clearly in line with our values, in supporting children to take up more exercise, helping with their mental health and everything around their set-up and ethos.

“We have been involved in this partnership for a while now which has been really successful and long may it continue as we move forward.”

Amanda Nisanci, head of partnerships at AR26, added:“At present, we bring free football to approximately 350 young people across Scotland every week.

“By 2023 we want to be helping 1,000 each week, with the ultimate goal to give every child the chance to play football in a safe, engaging, fun and inspiring environment.

“Every single penny raised by Class4Kids will directly benefit children and young people across Scotland.”

People can also donate directly to AR26 by taking part in a raffle where the prizes include a Liverpool shirt and football boots signed by Andy Robertson.
